I predict a riot

Unfortunately I did, back in Feb 2009 in this rather depressing sounding post:


OK, well I did think it would be the plague that comes with the olympics that would be a catalyst but it was at that point that I had decided it was too late to turn things around to avoid it.

…and it was over a year later which we got the coalition who haven’t exactly been bold of late. The disconnect people feel with the control of the lives seems as wide as ever. At least they stopped the ever increasing inhumane policies of labour of the time – Who now appear to be encouraging discontent by going on about cutting too fast then doing exactly that to important services in the local councils they control, and some like livingstone going out of his way to do interviews that blame it on the cuts.

Let’s just hope that’s the end of it now – I expect these particular scuffles have peaked, but if the government doesn’t find some self confidence soon (in a libertarian not authoritarian way ) and stop u-turning when small mobs complain about good policy then I expect the riots will be back

    Not clear. Do you think that “Tory cuts” triggered the riots?

      Perhaps the overuse of the phrase “tory cuts” (by the media and opposition MPs etc) has helped cause the riots although not the main underlying cause.

      The cuts themselves, no.
